Description
The incredible story of the world's largest visionary art environment: the Rock Garden of Chandigarh, kept secret by artist Nek Chand for fifteen years.
Description
As a refugee during the partition of India in 1947, Nek Chand Saini was resettled in the city of Chandigarh with nothing but the stories he carried in his heart from his homeland. Dismayed at the modern new city he now lived in, he began collecting broken glass, cracked water pots, and discarded construction materials. In a section of wilderness he cleared himself, Nek Chand built the Rock Garden, full of curving paths, intricate mosaics, and hundreds of sculptures of people and animals, which eventually grew to a thirteen-acre wonderland. It was his tribute to the village of his youth, a land full of hidden stories. Barb Rosenstock introduces readers to an incredible outsider artist's vast, stunning creation, and Claire A. Nivola's illustrations bring to life the natural beauty of India and the surreal and marvelous world Nek Chand coaxed from the wild landscape--Dust jacket.
